Dead Names. The Dark History of the Necronomicon.

Burton, MO: Subterranean Press, 2006. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Large octavo. 260pp. Original black cloth with red titling to spine, red titling and rules to upper board. Copy number 123 of the signed edition, limited to 350 numbered copies, SIGNED by Simon on a specially bound-in parchment coloured limitation page. A history and defence of the Simon's version of the "Necronomicon", by far the best-known of a number of texts that bear the title. Simon's work is dismissed by many as a hoax, whilst others defend it as an authentic magical text: it is genuinely interesting to read his own reflections on it. From the collection of Clive Harper with his discreet book-label neatly tipped in at the rear. Harper is well- known as the bibliographer of Austin Osman Spare, for updating the Aleister Crowley bibliography in the 2011 Teitan Press collection of Gerald Yorke's writings, and as someone who has lent his expertise to numerous other publications. Boards a little bowed (should flatten out if tightly shelved) otherwise a lovely copy in near Fine condition (no dust jacket issued). Item #66506
